Warren Montag’s Louis Althusser is a wonderfully clear introduction to Althusser’s thought that demonstrates in particular how his work continues to be useful for literary studies. Montag’s most original contribution is that he demonstrates that artistic production is at the center of Althusser’s thought. The emerging hegemony of immaterial labor and the significance of immaterial forms of property combine to make Althusser’s thought newly relevant.
